Are you having a hard time making the leap from Corporate America to starting your own business? Do you believe or feel that you are not lucky in life? In this weeks blog post I want to take this opportunity and talk about this dirty little word that seems to cause a lot of people men and women alike to not achieve their dreams. It’s called lucky.
Personally I believe there is no such thing as luck. If you wanna be lucky you better start facing your challenges, and you better start preparing for what it is that you desire to have or achieve. Zig Ziglar said, “success occurs when opportunity meets preparation.” Doing work that you love or stating your own business is not a matter of luck, it’s a matter of decisions. It’s working towards a goal.
“ Businesses are not discovered, they are created.” By Naomi Sodomin
You might feel that you are not lucky when it comes to creating a business that brings you lasting freedom, joy, and abundance. Realize it’s just your personal feeling. You see feelings are created from your perception of the situation. Some people set out to create a business and they can never get it off the ground. They have several start ups and nothing works. Everyone have something they feel they are unlucky at and maybe for you it’s your business. However, being unlucky is not real. The truth is your luck depends on how much work you are willing to put forth in any giving venture, whether it be in business, finance or relationships. You see businesses aren’t just discovered they are created. You have to find and create the business that is right for you. There’s only one business that is right for you and only you know what that business is. Your first step to making the leap from your corporate job to being your own boss is to gain clarity around what business is best for you. Don’t become a coach or an author because you think you can make a lot of money or because you love the lifestyle. What are your natural talents? What are you good at? Create a business around the things you are good at and enjoy.
If creating the perfect business was just a matter of luck then companies such as Facebook, Apple, Uber would not exist. These companies where created by individuals who took the time to figure out who they were and what it was they wanted to create. They used their natural talents and passion to create it. The more you enjoy what you do the easier it is to build a successful business.
How do you move from dreaming about owning your own business to actually owning your own business? You have to decide if this is what you really want. And you have to also look at your intentions around wanting it. Do you want it out of fear? Or do you want it because you know it will bring you more happiness.
Once you move from desire to decision, you have have to take an action step? Decision and desire without action yields no result. You must take an action step. The question you have to ask yourself is what action step can I take right now to move me closer to my desire. Allow your spirit to give you an action step. Listen to your heart and it will guide you as to what that that action step should be. One rule you have to keep in mind is when this action step comes to you, it will feel right. It will feel blissful and you will be excited to do it.
Making the leap from corporate America to owning your dream business is going to require you to come up with a plan. How are you planning to do it?
P.S. Do you feel unlucky when it comes to being successful? What is one thing you are doing to turn it around? I would love to hear from you. Leave me a comment.
